A specialist manufacturer, and one of the largest independent aluminium casting companies in the UK that is still family owned, is using the following AKO Pinch Valves in their foundry:
VMC25-03XK-50G-30LX – 1″ alu bodied pinch valve with stainless steel threaded sockets
VF080-03X-31-30LA – 3″ alu bodied pinch valve with alu/mild steel flanges
VF100-03X-31-30LA – 4″ alu bodied pinch valve with alu/mild steel flanges
In the foundry, raw or fully machined aluminium sand castings are manufactured. The sand is used to make the moulds, that molten aluminium is then poured into, to form the shape of a casting.
